Actually, due to the way CVS works, there is an empty directory there, and will *always* be a directory there. I believe that in order to actually remove the directory, you have to have shell access to the cvs server itself. Most users end up setting up cvs to prune empty directories when checking out because of this exact problem. -- Jonathan
